The Grief Support Ministry provides spiritual and emotional support for persons who have experienced loss through death. Grief support groups offer companionship and understanding from others who have experienced a similar loss, and are experiencing similar challenges that living with grief brings.
What to expect:
After the loss of a loved one, we experience a wide variety of feelings and emotions. The ever-changing emotions we experience with grief can catch us off guard, causing us to act out of character, or differently than our typical personality and demeanor.
We all need a support system to help us as we move through our grief journey. While family and friends are vital, unless they have experienced a close personal loss, they most likely don't fully "get it." That is where support groups can become a valuable resources. In a support group, you will find up to 10 or so new friends also living life after loss.
In a culture that often avoids talking about loss, support groups give you an opportunity to share your story openly and guilt free. You also have opportunity to hear the stories of others and talk about coping day-to-day, especially on the most difficult days of our grief journeys.
